The Left Behind Message Board and the Mark of the Beast Attitudinal Change Plan

"The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan gives New World Order Planners the ability to silently, almost invisibly, change the attitudes and values of the entire population of a people."—David Bay (1)

The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan is being used against the Christian population in various ways by those who are working to subvert them into falling away from the faith of Jesus. The Left Behind Message Board is being used in this manner to condition Christians to think differently about the mark of the beast doctrine.

SIX STEP ATTITUDINAL CHANGE PLAN

Step 1. Some practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public is advocated by a respected expert in a respected forum.

Step 2. At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.

Step 3. But, the very fact that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the subject of the debate.

Step 4. In the process, sheer repetition of the shocking subject under discussion gradually dulling its effect.

Step 5. People then are no longer shocked by the subject.

Step 6. No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to achieve it.

The Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan was used on the now defunct free version of the Left Behind Message Board to condition Christians to accept the apostate doctrine that a Christian may have the mark of the beast under certain conditions and remain saved.

Step 1. Some practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public is advocated by a respected expert in a respected forum.  

The respected experts are Dr. Tim LaHaye, renowned prophecy scholar, and Jerry B. Jenkins. The respected forum is the Left Behind series—specifically the book, The Mark. This is where "a practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public" (a Christian having the mark of the beast forced upon him and remaining saved) was first introduced to the unsuspecting Christian public. 

Step 2. At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.

The Left Behind Message Board is the public forum used to discuss this unthinkable idea over and over again for a period of almost one year before Desecration was released. They needed this time to "help" the reader get over his shock and accept the "fact" that a Christian character had the mark of the beast and remained saved.  

Step 3. But, the very fact that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the subject of the debate.

I wish I had saved the posts, but Jerry B. Jenkins became upset at times when his credibility came under scrutiny because he wrote about a Christian having the mark of the beast forced upon him and remaining saved. He did say that Dr. LaHaye warned him of the fire storm he would get for this "plot twist." Of course you are going to get some flack when you are trying to program Christians to dispose of a doctrine they have always known to be black or white and cut and dry—until now.

Step 4. In the process, sheer repetition of the shocking subject under discussion gradually dulling its effect.

This subject has been publicly debated many times on the Left Behind Message Board since The Mark was released in November, 2001. The readers of this forum had eleven months to be conditioned with the apostate notion that a Christian could have the mark of the beast and still be saved. Readers waited anxiously for Desecration to be released so they could learn how the impossible was really possible. 

Step 5. People then are no longer shocked by the subject. 

Jerry B. Jenkins fulfilled step 5 of the mark of the beast attitudinal change plan by his answer to the perplexed poster's inquiry: 

"How in the world can Chang receive both marks and be represented as being "saved"?" 

Jerry B's "step 5" answer indicated his boredom with this (repeated) question: 

"The question was posed by someone who clearly hasn't read the books. ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz...."

 Read the quote on page one of the thread. (It is the 4th post on the page)

Jerry sent the message that this was old, put-him-to-sleep news. Don't Christians know by now that a Christian may have the mark of the beast as long as he does not "accept" it? Shouldn't Christians realize—after years of conditioning—that this shocking subject is no longer shocking? 

The question about how a Christian may be marked with the beast and remain saved has been asked so many times by perplexed readers that it has been added to the FAQ page on the Left Behind website. Read this and find out how (yawn) a Christian may have the mark of the beast and remain saved:

Q: How is it possible for Chang to be saved after receiving the double mark?

A: "God looks on the heart," relates Jerry B. Jenkins. "He was a believer first, and thus, always." 

This answer was given in a mark of the beast attitudinal change plan fashion. Notice that Jerry did not even mention that the mark of the beast was forced on Chang. This is very significant because the forced marking was the starting point of this heresy. Jerry B. Jenkins said that since Chang was a believer before he received the mark, then he will remain one. 

The message sent to the reader is plain: If you are saved first, then the mark of the beast has no effect upon your salvation. This is an apostate teaching and is fueling the falling away of the church from the faith of Jesus.

Step 6. No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to achieve it. 

The mark of the beast attitudinal change plan was reached on the Left Behind Message Board on October 27, 2002—the satanic high week before Halloween. 

A regular poster, "David Hassid," made this statement in the authors' forum: 

"If the MOB was applied upon a true believer, whether by deception or by force, that person would not lose his salvation.

Now, if that situation is even allowed to happen, that is up to God." Read the quote on page 7.  (The last post on the page.)

This is step 6 of the attitudinal change plan. Not only has the premise of a Christian being marked with the beast and remaining saved been fully established on the Left Behind Message Board, this poster explained the means to achieve it: "Now, if that situation is even allowed to happen, that is up to God." 

Before, the debates on this forum focused on how a Christian could have the mark of the beast forced upon him and retain his salvation. This "David Hassid" poster went to the next step and stated:

"If the MOB was applied upon a true believer, whether by deception or by force, that person would not lose his salvation."  

Now we see the Left Behind antichrist agenda boldly stated: A Christian may be deceived into taking the mark of the beast and he will not drink of the wine of the wrath of God.

This is a soul-damning lie because many worldly Christians that take pleasure in unrighteousness will indeed be deceived into believing the lie--that Antichrist is God. God will send delusion on all who do not love the truth but instead, have pleasure in their unrighteous lives. Many Christians fall into this category, and the Left Behind Message Board is telling you not to worry. You can be deceived into taking the mark and you will not forfeit your salvation. This is exactly what Satan wants to deceive Christians into believing!

This statement is diabolical: 

"Now, if that situation is even allowed to happen, that is up to God."

 God might permit a Christian to be deceived into taking the mark of the beast? The God of the Holy Bible will never allow an overcoming Christian to be deceived into taking the mark of the beast! If a Christian is deceived into taking the mark, he will be damned, not saved! (See 2 Thessalonians chapter 2)

This "David Hassid" regular drove home this satanic point again on page 9 of the thread:

"The only way the "Chang Senario" (sic) could possibly come true is it is part of God's plan for a person's life." 

He actually stated that it might be God's plan for a Christian to have the mark of the beast!

I watched the forum daily to see if anyone in authority at the Tyndale House sponsored Left Behind Message Board would rebuke this Left Behind regular and tell him that his post was wrong and against scripture. Nobody said a word against his post! Jerry B. Jenkins and the administrators of this allegedly Christian-run forum did not counter this poster's outrageously soul subverting statements. The administration and Jerry B. Jenkins have spoken up many times when a poster has threatened the credibility of the Left Behind empire, so they do speak up when they want to.

After over a week, they simply removed the thread called "I don't get this..." to protect the guilty. I saved it and put it up on this site. They responded by restoring the thread on their forum. Of course they did not carry this thread over to their newly designed forum.

Here are the links to all nine pages of the thread used to reach step 6 of the mark of the beast attitudinal change plan.

notes: The Left Behind Message Board referred to in this article is now closed down and has been replaced with a forum that one must pay to access.

(1) While David Bay is rightfully credited with the term, "attitudinal change plan," we do not endorse the cuttingedge.org website. Some of the reasons are as follows: their promotion of the Amplified Bible, their promotion of the doctrines of Calvin and the Pre-tribulation rapture doctrine.
